, no? >> i think right after the election that was the message that even president obama and john boehner and the entire leadership, we saw that incredible image of the minority and majority leaders on both houses come out saying things that sounded like they were going to cooperate. but, you know, only in washington can that mean nothing quickly. but i do think, look, let's put this in perspective. we have a game of chicken going on here with a lot of posturing. there's 30 days to get this done, which for washington time it's like dog years. it's an eternity. one day counts for seven. when they want to get something done, they can get it done. but i think right now you're seeing a lot of public posturing to get the best offer possibly out of the other side. >> l.z.? >> you know, i spent the past couple days out in long beach at the victory fund initiative for lbjt leaders and talked to a lot of members who work in congress as well other congressional aides and ana is right, it's a lot of posturing and a lot of time. to the rest of us american people when we hear, oh, 30 days lef

slow release. >>> one of the big decisions president obama must make is who will replace secretary of state hillary clinton. john kerry's name is floating around. there's talk of michael bloomberg or bill clinton. dana millbank is a "washington post" columnist. the president is standing firm by rice. we remember the stern words he gave against the senators who were targeting her. take a listen. >> for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> since then a couple of other senators besides mccain and graham have spoken out saying rice misled the public. when the american ambassador and three others were killed in the attack in september. the real question here is can she be confirmed? not just because of benghazi but because of her whole body of work as the united nations ambassador? >> well, she does have an unusually large number of enemies on capitol hill because of things that have happened in the past, certainly john mccain b

to rick santorum. i want to start with you, john. you're on the inside. you know something about this. do you understand how somebody would think that the electorate that's going to participate in 2012 in a general election with barack obama, an african-american, a democrat, and a relatively popular president would create a different electorate than one in 2010 or pry mire situation? >> as you know, every poll starts with an assumption. here's who we think is going to show up and vote, therefore that's who we ask the question of. romney -- not just the republican campaign but republican pollsters all across the country guessed wrong. we didn't see the intensity that was there for the president, particularly among young voters wchl overs . we oversampled male white voter. you add that all together and you're going to see two, three, four-point differences. and the assumption is incumbents are not going to pick up points on election day. >> i think that's right. let's get to first one. perceptions about the enthusiasm level. we thought -- you and i were talking about the last leekz. you cou
